Re: [actmodels] Give Chessie an opportunity to explain !

Vipul @ Your opinion is noted, but it seems your appreciation of Chessie's behaviour differs from others'. Allegations in the email below are simply too serious - to be ignored by an Organiser.
 
Chessie @  Would you care to respond ?  Deleting "Non active" is a lame excuse. Are you really trying to expel other organisers and those who question your integrity?
 
Regards,
Sunny

Subject: Re: [actmodels] About Chessie removing people from meetup

Hello All,

I have been reading a lot about how Chessie did different things to a lot of you people. I appreciate the fact that you are voicing your opinion, but does it make sense to actually spoil someone else's name on this big a forum?

I am no one to comment on what she did and she did not. I, as a member of the Photo & Graphics group (a group run by Chessie) have had a good experience with the group and the kind of shoots that are being organised. Again, thats my personal opinion. As you would all agree, running a meetup group isn't always that easy (I myself am an organiser of a meetup group - not photography though) and she has been doing it the way she feels it right. If you have a problem with her, I would suggest you take it up with her separately rather than making this a huge issue in another public forum.

I am sorry if I hurt anybody's sentiments out here...but as has been very vividly publicised here, I am just voicing my opinion.


Cheers
V

Hi guys

Just a personal thought about the behaviour of the new organiser of the London and Fashion Modeling Network, Chessie.

Enough is enough.

I met her when I was a member of another meetup she was running. I partecipated to a couple of events.
Unfortunately she showed pretty soon, loud and clear, the  kind of person she is. At least to me.
She was bossing people around with a lot of stupid rules, abusing models making them posing since early morning just for her and then for the others members (20 photographers) in the afternoon. Problem is: we paid 10 pounds for 5 minutes of their modeling time and she had for free hours of shooting and the model releases. For example, groups of 6 photographer and 1 model were left in Liverpool street without a clue, and just 30 minutes to take pictures. This is clearly useless and unfair.
When I complained, giving the feedback she was asking for, I have been immediately removed from the meetup and my comment deleted.
Any member should feel free to give honest feedback without being removed, this is the essence of the correct working of a meetup, and, I'd say, of society in general.
She was just afraid that other people could awake and realise that the events were not really worth the money spent.

She is doing the same with this meetup, London Fashion and Modelling. Like me many of you have been removed without a reason.
Not being active is not a reason: you could join and wait for an event you really like and need, or just reading to the mailing list.
She is removing people that could cause her some problem telling the truth, or competing with her.

I think this behaviour is very unfortunate and unacceptable, and a bad example of how a meetup should be run.
I left feedback, even negative, in other meetup, for example the alternative photography, and I have never been removed. If there is a problem you just talk to me.
If you want to be treated like sheeps, keep going to her events.

Am I the only one to feel crossed by this?
